"¿Quiénes son los vecinos ahora?"
Translation:Who are the neighbors now?
I could imagine, you talk to someone about a flat for instance. The previous neighbours moved out, new people are in.
Your neighbours have just encountered a vampire. Who are they now? ?? I'd better get some garlic. ..
Duolingo will not always give usable/coherent sentences. Sometimes they put together some very bizarre sentences. The point of duolingo is not gaining really useful phrases, it's to teach particulars about grammar, etc. :(
True, but most of them, including this one, can be used in some context. I don't think it's too tough to imagine a context for this sentence.
Hmmf. you'd hardly ever use this one unless there was a permanent bad smell in the house next door.
We have a house across the street from us that has been rented to many different people over the past decade and has been sold at least once during that time. I and the people around my house might have said this very sentence, or something very similar to it, many times over the past few years. Really, this is not difficult to imagine.
Could this also mean, "Who are your neighbours now?", in the same way that the definite article is used in place of a possessive pronoun for parts of the body?
